I'm an illustrator and animator with a fondness for yellowy-greens, marzipan and fanciful characters. I've been self employed for the last five years, with work spanning book illustration, content development for film and television, corporate web animation, television commercials and music videos. I have an ongoing relationship with kid's folk band, Teeny Tiny Stevies, designing characters and directing their music videos.

Since 2015, I have illustrated a number of picture book projects, including Anthea’s Garden by Katherine Rawlings, If I Were A Wizard by Paul Hamilton, and The Fantastic World of Autumn Place by Dan Nixon; commissioned by the City of Casey. I am currently working with Scholastic Australia on two children's picture books to be released in 2018.

Additionally, I am a co-founder and creative at Pirate Size Productions, a production company creating bite-sized animation content for kids and families. As well as creating and developing our own original IP, Pirate Size Productions partners with production companies across the globe to develop and produce pitch materials, scripts, trailers, music composition and design.
